Diana Center Ribbon-Cutting

The sun was high in the sky, and, despite the chilly winds, students, faculty, trustees, staff, donors, and supporters crowded The Millicent McIntosh Terrace to witness a major on-campus event: the official ribbon-cutting ceremony and opening of the new Diana Center on February 3, 2010. It was standing-room only as President Spar, Board Chair Anna Quindlen ’74, Dean of the College Dorothy Urman Denburg ’70, SGA President Katie Palillo ’10, and ribbon-cutter Diana Touliatou Vagelos ’55, for whom the building was named, welcomed spectators and spoke about the process and successful conclusion of the construction. The Diana has earned plaudits from the press, public, and government officials as well as the Barnard community, and the College extends its heartfelt thanks to those whose hard work and contributions made the dream a reality.
